EMES (EMES International Research Network) has held major international conferences since 2001 and gathers 14 established university research centres and nearly 400 individual researchers from over 50 countries to work on international research projects.

COST (European Cooperation in Science and Technology) is a pan-European intergovernmental framework. Its mission is to enable breakthrough scientific and technological developments leading to new concepts and products and thereby contribute to strengthening Europe’s research and innovation capacities. The specific Action 16206 supporting this conference is “Empowering the next generation of social enterprise scholars” (EMPOWER-SE).

GESES (Grupo de Estudios Sociales y Económicos del Tercer Sector) is a research group formed by an interdisciplinary team of professors from the University of Zaragoza, from the departments of Management and Organization of Companies, Accounting and Finance, Psychology and Sociology, in coordination with external researchers. Institutional member of EMES since 2019, the lines of work of GESES include: 1) Companies and Organizations of the Social Economy; 2) Public Policies and Sustainable Development; 3) Complex Social Problems and Social Innovation; and 4) Social Responsibility and Sustainable Development Goals.

The Social Economy Laboratory LAB_ES is conceived as a space for students, teachers and service staff to experience social economy, linked to economic projects based on the principles of participation, mutual support, solidarity and commitment to the environment, within the framework of the University of Zaragoza and in contact with the business and associative reality of this sector. It is divided into three areas: collaborative work, university participation, and collective research.

CEPES-Aragón is an association, at regional level, whose inter-sectorial nature makes it a reference point for the Social Economy in Aragon, and is constituted as a platform for institutional dialogue with the public authorities. The creation of CEPES-Aragon in 2014 is the result of the work carried out by the entities that previously formed part of the Aragonese Platform for the Promotion of the Social Economy. With all of this, the platforms of different entities of the Aragonese Social Economy considered it relevant to constitute a general platform with the main objective of promoting and disseminating the Social Economy in Aragon.
